    Take your pick. Any $100 card will be better than internal graphics.

    If you are looking for performance of a $200 card or better, you might want to consider upgrading your CPU to Core-i5 status. You have a Sandy Bridge motherboard, so you wouldn't need a new motherboard.

    I agree. You need a better CPU (possibly even a new Power Supply) if you are going to get a $200+ card. If you're looking for a small boost in power, the Radeon HD 7750 is a good card, and won't put any strain on your Power Supply.

    You may want to upgrade the RAM to 8GB also.

    Just checking, but it this correct? Your motherboard appears to have only two DIMMS so each RAM module would have to be 3GB which seems unlikely.

    Unless they are not a pair of dual channel memory, such as one 2GB and the other 4GB.

    Yes, you're right. For some reason I didn't consider that.
